Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.

He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.

" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."

The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.

"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

Limehouse - Somewhere over the rainbow

Limehouse - Somewhere over the rainbow
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

The forecast was not particularly good for today but we ventured out for a while anyway. The minute we arrived at our destination in Limehouse, Ontario it started to rain!

Luckily it was but a passing shower. As we stepped out of the car we were greeted by this spectacular rainbow. Not only was it complete but double. It was going to be a good day ...

Two quotes for today:

The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears. ~John Vance Cheney

and after a weekend surrounded with good friends, you know who you are ..

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. ~ Irish Blessing
